Ozma of Oz

560635Goodreads Says:    Readers of all ages will welcome the chance to be reunited with Dorothy Gale and such beloved characters as the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion, as well as to meet new favorites such as the Hungry Tiger, whose appetite is never satisfied; Princess Langwidere, who has thirty heads; Billina, a talking chicken; and Tiktok, a mechanical man.

Blown overboard while sailing with her uncle, Dorothy finds herself in the fairy realm of Ev. She sets out with her friends to rescue the Queen of Ev and her ten children, who have been imprisoned by the cruel Nome King. But even Ozma, the wise Ruler of Oz, is no match for the clever king, and it's up to Dorothy to save everyone from terrible danger. But will the Nome King's enchantments be too much even for the plucky little girl from Kansas?

My Thoughts:

-    This was a great Oz book! I loved it!

-    I liked that Dorothy has returned to the series along with all the rest of the characters. I can't get enough of them.

-    I like the new characters introduced, especially Billina. She is so funny and sassy. I love her. The wheelers and the nome king were great as well. It was good to get to know Ozma since she was barely introduced in the last book. 

-    The new Land of Ev was fun to visit, but I will always love Oz the best. 

-    Another great adventure with classic characters!

  1. It's still weird to me that these exist. Sounds like there's a ton more characters and worlds to explore.

  2. This sounds like the book that the movie Return to Oz was based on, which when I watched it at the time, I didn't realize. I know my family didn't like that movie as much (I did), but I think that's because it's nothing like the original movie with Judy Garland. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. :)
